2:06 am
photobombed her younger sister. yeah, sisters do that to each other. before leaving the inaugural platform as the center of attention for the very last time, president obama had the presence of mind to stop and take in the moment. >> one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> great job. ♪ meanwhile, the "today" show's al roker had this unforgettable moment with vice president joe biden while covering the inaugural parade. >> the vice president! mr. vice president! mr. vice president! hey, how you doing? come on! come on! they won't let you?
2:07 am
that's it! yeah! all right! yes! yes! >> the persistent al roker. now here's your look at this morning's dish of "scrambled politics." we start with inauguration moments making the rounds. beau biden, the vice president's son, had a very serious expression on his face as he closely watched beyonce's performance of the national anthem. her performance also seemed to catch the eye of senator chuck schumer. he was also behind the dazzling diva stealing a bit of the spotlight with that face. president clinton didn't want to miss the chance of seeing kelly clarkson up close and personal. he was caught sneaking a peek out of line. obama's brother-in-law, craig robinson, was hamming it up over the president's shoulder. eric cantor was caught making some sour faces during richard blanco's reading of the inaugural poem. doesn't look like he's a fan. and from a frequent critic of president obama, conservative

inch of snow across cape cod. here's where we are going to see this cold air just continue to stream over the unfrozen great lakes. especially western michigan and also western new york and northwestern pennsylvania. that's where we're going to see most of the additional snow. perhaps an additional 6 to 12 inches of snow in that area. and we could also see 6 to 12 in northwestern michigan and also northeastern michigan as well. right on the thumb there. we are looking at this cold air to hold strong for several more days. nine below right now in minneapolis. work in wind on top of that, it feels like 22 below in minneapolis. feels like ten below in chicago right now. and high temperatures today don't look all that impressive. the cold air just sits across the northern plains moving into the western great lakes. and then this will continue to surge eastward as we head into tomorrow. temperatures today in boston, only 28 degrees. 25 in new york city. but ironically in southern california yesterday, we tied and even broke record high temperatures with highs yesterday in the lower 80s.

welcome back to "first look." elections are being held in israel right now to determine if prime minister benjamin netanyahu will win a third term in office. nbc's jim maceda is live in tel aviv. good morning. assuming priedictioning are correct and he wins, what effect could that have on israel's policies? >> reporter: hi to you, mara. well, about 15%, keep in mind, of israelis are saying that they're still undecided going into today's voting booth, so this is not a done deal. but all indications are that netanyahu's right-wing party with a second partner party will
2:14 am
win a third term but with fewer seats, maybe eight to ten fewer seats in parliament. the biggest question is who does he choose in a coalition to govern with? the smart money is on him lining up with even more hard-line parties to his right which, of course, is the nightmare scenario for palestinians. or he could surprise everyone and team up with a more centrist bloc, and that would probably give him more wiggle room, at least that's what the analysts are saying, to deal with the stalled peace talks and what israelis are calling a tanking economy. and the horse trading begins as early as tomorrow morning. mara? >> and let's turn, if we can, to elsewhere in the region to syria where russia is sending planes to lebanon to evacuate citizens from the region. now, what kind of sign does that send to assad's government in syria? >> reporter: well, that's a very good question. first of all, the russian government's making this look like an evacuation, a short-term evacuation, only for those who want to leave the region. but russian officials are

underscoring that, you know, there are tens of thousands of russians living and working in syria. it's their former client state. russia has a warm-water naval base in syria. evacuating 100 russian citizens isn't that much. however, this would appear to be the first sign that moscow is finally seeing the writing on the wall without publicly admitting it, of course, that president assad's days in power are now truly numbered. mara? >> jim maceda live in tel aviv, thanks so much for that. now back to the capitol where the senate has the opportunity to kill a filibuster. instead they can change the rules in favor of a simple 51-vote majority while bringing back the talking filibuster. next to los angeles where former cardinal roger ma noenny said i'm sorry. according to confidential church records, the retired catholic leader and other chergymen shielded pedophile priests from criminal prosecution for more than a decade before the scandal
